How do I register my PCD pharma franchise company?

Why Go With A PCD Pharma Franchise Company?

PCD Pharma Franchise is a business model in the pharmaceutical industry where a company grants the rights to an individual or a group to sell their products in a specific geographic area under the franchise's brand name. PCD stands for "Propaganda Cum Distribution," which means that the franchisee promotes and distributes the products in their designated area. In this model, the franchisee has to invest in the business, but they get to enjoy the benefits of a well-established brand name and products. They also receive support from the parent company in terms of marketing, product training, and other operational aspects. In exchange, the franchisee has to follow the rules and regulations set by the parent company and ensure the quality of the products sold under the brand name.
